Active for over 40 years with the Communist Party of Canada, Bert Whyte was a journalist, an underground party organizer and soldier during World War II, and a press correspondent in Beijing and Moscow. But any notion of him as a Communist Party hack would be mistaken. Whyte never let leftist ideology get in the way of a great yarn. In Champagne and Meatballs–a memoir written not long before his death in Moscow in 1984–we meet a cigar-smoking rogue who was at least as happy at a pool hall as at a political meeting.
